Introduction

1.1 About the SAP HANA Studio


The SAP HANA studio is a collection of applications for the SAP HANA appliance software. It enables
technical users to manage the SAP HANA database, to create and manage user authorizations, and
to create new or modify existing models of data in the SAP HANA database. It is a client tool, which
can be used to access local or remote SAP HANA databases.
The SAP HANA studio runs on the Eclipse platform 3.6.
For more information about SAP HANA, see the SAP HANA Master Guide.

1.2 Supported Platforms


You can use the SAP HANA studio on the following platforms:

Microsoft Windows x32 and x64 versions of:


Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 7

SUSE Linux Enterprise Server SLES 11: x86 64-bit version

1.3 SAP HANA Guides

Planning

2.1 System Requirements


Java JRE 1.6 or 1.7 must be installed to run the SAP HANA studio.
The Java runtime must be accessible for the user that runs the studio via the PATH variable.
Make sure that you choose the correct Java variant for your installation of SAP HANA studio:

For a 32-bit installation, choose a 32-bit Java variant.


For a 64-bit installation, choose a 64-bit Java variant.

2.2 Installation Paths


If you do not specify an installation path during installation, the following default values apply:

2.3 Prerequisites for Updating the SAP HANA Studio with SUM for SAP HANA
Before you update the SAP HANA studio using the Software Update Manager (SUM) for SAP HANA,
perform the prerequisites listed below.
Make sure that you meet these requirements to use this method:
1. Make sure that the SAP HANA studio to be updated was installed with version SPS03 of the SAP
HANA application software, which must have been installed using the SAP HANA unified installer.
2. Make sure that SUM for SAP HANA is running.
3. Configure the update site by choosing Help > Install New Software and entering the URL
http://<host>:<port>/studio_repository/.
This refers to the https port of the SUM for SAP HANA process, which is by default 8080.

Installation or Update

Installation or Update

Installation
You can install the SAP HANA studio with one of the following methods:

You use the GUI-based Installation Manager, which is based on the program hdbsetup.
This is the recommended installation method.

You use the hdbinst program at the command line.

Update
You can update the SAP HANA Studio with one of the following methods:

You download the latest version of SAP HANA studio from SAP Service Marketplace, and use
the GUI-based Installation Manager, which is based on the program hdbsetup.
This is the recommended update method.

You download the latest version of SAP HANA studio from SAP Service Marketplace, and use
the hdbinst program at the command line.
This is suitable for quick updates of individual SAP HANA studios where there is no infrastructure.

You use the SAP HANA system as the central source of updates. This means that, whenever
the SAP HANA system is updated, the Software Update Manager (SUM) for SAP HANA offers
updates to all SAP HANA studio installations in the system landscape.
This is suitable for automated updates of multiple SAP HANA studios. For more information, see
Prerequisites for Updating the SAP HANA Studio with SUM for SAP HANA

You set up the repository manually using the hdbinst program on any server, then manually
configure it to be available to the SAP HANA studio installations.
This is suitable for large landscapes with multiple SAP HANA studios where the update needs
to be centrally available. There is no dependency on SUM for SAP HANA.

3.1 Installation or Update on Linux

2012-04-30

Installation or Update

3.1.1 Using the Installation Manager on Linux

GTK2 is installed so that you can run the graphical installation tool (this is contained in SLES11).
You are logged on as the root user.
This user is authorized to open a display.
The Java runtime is accessible either via the PATH or JAVA_HOME variable or by specifying the --vm
option.

You need a local X11 graphical environment and an X server on the machine where you perform
the installation.

1. Download and extract the software to an empty directory.


2. Open a root shell and go to the directory where you unpacked the software.
3. Call the Installation Manager as follows:
./hdbsetup
Note:
If you have several installation kits - that is, several installation variants - on your system, navigate
to the download directory, and enter the following command instead to start the Installation Manager:
./hdbsetup -a studio
4. Choose the activity to be performed.
5. Follow the instructions displayed by the Installation Manager.
6. Leave the root shell after the installation or update has completed.
The SAP HANA studio is installed or updated.

3.1.3 Installing or Updating the Repository on Linux


You are logged on as a root user.
1. Open a root shell and go to the directory where you unpacked the software for this installation.
2. Call the installation program as follows: .

Server function provided by Eclipse to regularly update your installation. For more information, see the
"SAP HANA Database <Release> - Administration Guide" at the SAP HANA Knowledge Center on
SAP Help Portal.

3.2 Installation or Update on Microsoft Windows


If the SAP HANA Studio is installed into the default directory on a Windows 7 operating system, write
access to the files is prevented if you are not running the studio as the Windows administrator. We
therefore recommend that - if you do not have Windows administrator rights - you install the SAP HANA
Studio in an alternative location, such as below the user's home folder or somewhere else on disk.

3.2.1 Using the Installation Manager on Windows

11

2012-04-30

Installation or Update

option.

You are logged on as a local administrator.

1. Download and extract the software to an empty directory.


2. In the Windows Explorer, go to the directory where you unpacked the software and double-click
hdbsetup to start the Installation Manager.
Note:
If you have several installation kits - that is, several installation variants - on your system, open a
command prompt, navigate to the download directory, and enter the following command instead to
start the Installation Manager:
hdbsetup -a studio
3. Choose the activity to be performed and follow the instructions displayed by the Installation Manager.
The SAP HANA studio is installed or updated.
